Few people could gain the respect and admiration that Dean Lane has cultivated from both faculty and students alike. Tirelessly, she assumes responsibilities, going out of her way to coordinate the functions of Piedmont College. Her art for getting things done combined with her genuine friendliness have made her a key foundation of Piedmont. To her we dedicate this book. Dedicated To Dr. Mary C. Lane In Appreciation Of Mr. Nolan Nix We extend our sincere appreciation to Mr. Nolan Nix, Registrar. Mr. Nix entered on his duties as Registrar in the same year in which we began our college career as Freshmen. Throughout our years at Piedmont College he has been our advisor and personal counselor as well as " keeper of our records. " We salute him for his conscientious attention to duty, his integrity, and his wise counsel.

Piedmont College Groduotes Moke Good! By Dr. James E. Walter President, Piedmont College Piedmont College has been built to its present strength through the success of its graduates. They succeed in education, in business, and in the professions. It has been my pleasure in recent months to assemble into a book entitled. Piedmont College Graduates Make Good, a series of narratives about our successful graduates. My message to our friends throughout the nation is rooted in the human and divine appeal portrayed in the New Testament. One of my special inspirations is the verse in Luke that says, " Jesus grew in wisdom, and stature, and in favor with God and man. " I believe with all my heart that this verse applies also to the young men and women who come to Piedmont College and who leave its halls to make their mark in the world as men and women of character and as " workmen who needeth not to be ashamed. " I believe with all my heart that people like people, especially young people, and that they are happy, as we are at Piedmont College, to help those who need and merit the opportunity to use their divine gifts in industry and enthusiasm to earn a first-class college education. Thus my book is addressed to those who have given of their prayers and substance on behalf of Piedmont College. Today Piedmont College is a member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools with full academic stature. Its graduates are accepted gladly by graduate schools of universities throughout the nation. The future of the College is underlined with an encouraging endowment fund, a set of modern buildings that are debt free, and a free-enterprise spirit of faith in the Good Life among its students, faculty, and trustees A second group to who the book is addressed are high-school young people who are in search of a high-quality, four-year college education. Frequently young people ask me if they can expect to " make good in a big job " if they graduate from a little college. My answer is in the narratives of this book. It is filled with the lives of our graduates in every field, from Joe Boyd, now Justice of the Supreme Court of Florida to Billy Frye, Vice President for Academic Affairs of the University of Michigan. My story includes Lonnie Burns, Superintendent of Schools, Habersham County, a recent graduate, and Claude L. Purcell, an old grad who served as Superintendent of the Schools of Georgia during difficult years. It is my hope that this Annual, like my book, will inspire a new generation of serious and deserving young people to enroll at Piedmont in search of a comprehensive liberal arts education. We know that our humble efforts have produced much more than a normal percentage of leadership; we know that our education at Piedmont produces the creative and maximum learning achievements of human endeavor. We know that our personal associations in the classrooms, the laboratories, and the playing fields prepare eager learners with maximum skills. As this Class of 1982 graduates, it is my prayer that they and all our graduates — past and future — will experience in their lives the enjoyment and satisfaction we have at Piedmont College in knowing that the young men and women whom we have as our students make good not only in earning a good living but also in the abundant life promised us by Jesus Christ.

In Memory Of Dr. Lillian McKee July 24, 1904 - July 22, 1982 Dr. Lillian McKee gave 29 years of dedicated service to Piedmont College. She was a sensitive and understanding individual whose achievements were many. Following her graduation from Thorsby Institute, Thorsby, Alabama in 1924, Dr. McKee taught for two years in the rural elementary schools of Macon County, Alabama. In 1926 she entered Piedmont College and was graduated in 1929. Following graduation from Piedmont College, Dr. McKee returned to Thorsby Institute to teach for five years. In 1930, Dr. McKee took a position in Choctaw County, southwest Alabama, as a school attendance supervisor, which involved casework and welfare work with underpriviledged children. Lack of a county health department motivated her to take the initiative in developing a clinic for crippled children and for eye, ear, nose and throat diseases. She also collected books, took them to schools, and started what later developed into a library for the county. In 1947, at the invitation of the then Acting President of Piedmont College, Dr. A. R. VanCleave, Dr. McKee came to Piedmont College as instructor in sociology. Dr. McKee was to remain in Demorest the rest of her life. In 1959, she was appointed by Dr. James E. Walter, President of Piedmont College, to the position of Director of Food Services for the College. This position she held until her retirement in 1976. In 1972, in recognition of her many services to the College, the Piedmont Board of Trustees awarded her the honorary degree of Doctor of Education. In addition to her formal duties, Dr. McKee made many notable contributions to the College and community through her many and versatile talents. Her interest and skill in raising plants left an enduring memorial to her on the College grounds. The pine forest on the edge of the present Piedmont College golf course was planted by her students as a class project in her course in sociology. Many of the blossoming plants, trees, and bushes on the present campus had their start in her rooting beds. Dr. McKee was an inspiration to others to use their talents and contribute to the betterment of their community.
